I don’t want to write about distribution caps, failed business plans, or legacy brewers raging against the dying of the light today. Let’s talk about cheese. More importantly cheese and beer. It is a glorious combination that everyone should enjoy.
My plan for the day is to pair a few Belgian style beers I have with an assortment of cheeses. Why am I doing this you may ask. Because I can. So, I can write about it here later today or more likely tomorrow. To work on my beer and food pairing for the Cicerone exam. Most importantly, I like beer and I like cheese.
The beers for this experiment are (assuming I can get through all of them without passing out) Blackberry Farms Quad, Blackberry Farms Brett Saison, Holy Mountain Witchfinder, Grimm Candlepower, and Four Saints Murder On The River.
For my cheeses, today, I will go with a gruyere, camembert, a washed rind cheese maybe, and a big old sharp cheddar. That should be a good range of cheeses as far as flavor and texture to get me started on the day.
Wish me luck. This could end badly in so many ways.
